The Ondo State Police Command has vowed to arrest Deji Adenuga (aka Dakar), the man who set 8 members of his girlfriend’s family ablaze, because she broke up with him.
Naija Buzz had reported how Dakar set the residence of his girlfriend, Titi, on fire, killing 5 instantly, while 3 others are in the hospital.
The ugly incident which occurred on Adetuwo Street, Igbodigo town located in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State, was confirmed by the police in the state.
SP Femi Joseph, the spokesman of the state Police Command, had earlier confirmed the incident, saying (as published earlier on Naija Buzz); “We are on the trail of the suspect, while investigation has commenced into the matter. We will soon arrest him.”
In his statement today with the New Agency of Nigeria, he said that the police are seriously hunting for the suspect and vowed that he will be apprehended.
“I do not know what was on the mind of the suspect to have set ablaze the family members. This is very unfortunate.
“Although, the suspect is on the run, we are seriously on a manhunt for him for committing this dastardly act and we will bring him to justice,” he said.
